I'm thinkin you might really dig these shows:

Small, intimate venue. Pristine, powerful sound with this A+ Rango Keshavan/Charlie Miller offering. Band comes out hot with a seriously smokin' bama getaway with the Excellent Sound dialed in almost immediately. I can only imagine what the drums segment must feel like with good headphones on!! Great show.

Same venue, same taper rig. Killer sound! The Dew on this one is an ALL TIME GREAT. This version is a great example of the band where they display ultimate dynamic control. They are listening to each other intently and the crowd is indeed intently listening as well -dead silent during the quietest parts. This has the dead at their loudest and softest IN THE SAME SONG. Stunning.

Doesn't get much better than this. Not only is the a way-under-the-radar show in terms of performance, the AUD is as good or better than any SBD for delivering crystal clear sound AND giving you the "feel" of being there w/Audience reaction.

Highlights include but are not limited to an all-time best ever LET IT GROW seguing into a killer DEAL, a great ALTHEA, sparkling FRANKLINS and top notch STRANGER. Whole 2nd set is great too esp. the WHEEL and HE's GONE.
